Skin Needling Training

In this comprehensive, advanced skin correction course where you will learn all the technical aspects of offering your clients true, lasting results. 

Our course is comprehensive and designed for those seeking a higher level of knowledge around this particular modality.

We take an evidenced based approach to micro needling.

In a nutshell, needling relies on the impact of a needle piercing the epidermis and parts of the dermis, to trigger a series of events within the skin, which mimics the natural skin repair cycle, while maintaining barrier function.

Skin Needling is a 2-fold treatment modality - Cosmetic Micro-Needling & Collagen Induction Therapy

Cosmetic Micro-Needling (MN) is where a qualified skin professional pierces the surface epidermal layers with tiny needles, to enhance and increase cosmetic absorption and penetration. Achieved results will depend on the selected skin care preparation. This is a professional in-clinic treatment which can be repeated and complemented at home with a needle roller and skin treatment regime. 

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is where the qualified skin professional pierces the deeper layers of the epidermal layers with tiny needles for the purpose of stimulating collagen and elastin synthesis. This is an in-clinic procedure only. 

Both these modalities are covered in this one course. 

MN & CIT are very effective in the treatment of the following:

  • Pre-mature Ageing
  • Varying degrees of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging Skin
  • Poor Clarity
  • Thin epidermis
  • Uneven Texture
  • Enlarged pore size
  • Loss of elasticity and firmness
  • Variety of scarring like scarring from acne, chicken pox, injury or surgery
  • Uneven Pigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Stretch marks (additional unit)
  • Hair loss (additional unit) 

Additional Advantages of MN & CIT: 

  • Safe
  • Limited down time
  • Non-chemical
  • Non-surgical
  • Non-ablative
  • Cumulative results
  • Low risk of post treatment complication
  • Treating multiple area: scalp, face, neck & body

Through the combination of our course & post-training support, you will be confident to incorporate these modalities into your treatment plan for clients in the clinic.

In this class we discuss every aspect of needling in salon treatments, pre and post care, home care and troubleshooting.
